AnaSpec Introduces HiLyte Fluor™ 750
News Jan 04, 2010
Highlighting its collection of high performance HiLyte Fluor™ dyes, AnaSpec has introduced HiLyte Fluor™ 750.
Spectrally similar to Cy7™ dye, HiLyte Fluor™ 750 dye is the longest-wavelength HiLyte Fluor™ dye currently available. Its fluorescence emission maximum at 778 nm is well separated from commonly used far-red fluorophores, including HiLyte Fluor™ 647, HiLyte Fluor™ 680 or allophycocyanin (APC), facilitating multicolor analysis.
Extinction coefficient is 275,000 M-1cm-1, with a quantum yield of 0.12. With a peak excitation at ~753 nm, conjugates of HiLyte Fluor™ 750 dyes can be excited by a xenon-arc lamp or dye-pumped lasers operating in the 720–750 nm range. Its near infrared spectra render the HiLyte Fluor™ 750 dye the ideal candidate for in vitro and in vivo tissue imaging.
